I love hearing from blog readers, and in an average week I will get well over 100 personal emails. Many of those emails have questions about RVing or other things I’ve written about, and I’m always happy to answer to the best of my ability. If I don’t know the answer, I try to refer […]

As most regular blog readers know, back in early February we went to Arizona to pick up my cousin Beverly and brought her here to live with us. She has some serious health issues and wasn’t getting much accomplished with the doctors in Tucson. A few weeks ago she had surgery to insert a shunt […]

I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things.

After reading yesterday’s blog in which I said we needed to run into New Smyrna Beach to get the registrations renewed on our vehicles, three blog readers left comments or sent me emails asking why I didn’t just do it online, which would be quicker and more convenient. When we changed our official domicile from […]

After reading yesterday’s blog Apples And Oranges, a reader wanted to know why we would take our new van all the way to Arizona and put all of those miles on it instead of driving our Ford Explorer. He said when he buys a new vehicle he does everything he can to keep the miles […]

After being gone for so long it was absolutely wonderful to sleep in our own bed Wednesday night. In fact, it was so good that neither one of us wanted to get up yesterday morning. But we did, because we had a lot of catching up to do. The first order of business for me […]
